It is 9 months until our group trip to Walt Disney World…. are you excited? I know I am! I am hoping that a lot of you are able to join my family, but if you aren’t, you can still save along with us for your own financial goals!
I haven’t made a deposit to the Disney fund since May of last year! That’s around the time that we decided to start trying for a baby, so a lot of the money that I would be sitting aside for the Disney fund had to be put aside for our medical deductible (it’s $2500 just for me!). I’ve almost finished making the pre-payments to my OB so it is now time to get back to putting money into the Disney fund.
Even though I was saving for the medical deductible, I was also simultaneously saving gift cards, spare change, unexpected checks, etc for the Disney fund. So I have a nice size deposit to make into our Disney fund!
